Holme Hill is a space efficient, semi detached family house with delightful views over adjoining pasture. It is believed to date from the early 1900s and has been thoughtfully extended and refurbished in recent years. The property has been finished to a high standard and many of the rooms benefit from bespoke, built in storage and the bathrooms all have high quality, Lefroy Brooks fittings.
Approached from the large parking area at the front of the house, where there is scope for the development of a garage and ancillary accommodation. A pedestrian gate opens onto a pathway within a partially enclosed garden, leading to a welcoming porch. The farmhouse style front door opens into the entrance hall, off of which is a good sized coat/boot room, cloakroom and utility room, all necessary spaces for an active outdoor lifestyle with easy access to the fabulous surrounding countryside.
The kitchen/breakfast room is very well equipped and can be accessed from both the entrance hall and the drawing room. It has an abundance of built-in storage including a walk-in pantry. There is a dining area to one end of the kitchen with storage bench seating. The matching wall and base units are set beneath wooden worksurfaces with an integrated Smeg gas hob and oven, and two Butler/Belfast sinks. At the heart of the kitchen is a 2 oven Aga. A travertine floor runs from the walk-in pantry into the kitchen where it then meets the solid oak flooring through the rest of the kitchen and conservatory which leads off to the southern side of the house and has double doors leading out to the terrace at the front of the house. Also linked is the drawing room which has exposed beams, an open fireplace with wood burning stove and double doors leading out to a side terrace with views over neighbouring fields.
Beyond the kitchen is the rear hall with the former front door and a study/sitting room. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing, which has been cleverly designed to incorporate plenty of storage.
There are 4 double bedrooms on the first floor including a substantial master bedroom which has plenty of cupboard space, beautiful views over the fields beyond, and a large bathroom en suite with a separate shower cubicle and travertine tiled floor. The 3 further bedrooms are all doubles and have the use of the family shower room.
A further staircase, with a door giving access to a large storage space in the roof space, rises to the second floor, where there is a fifth bedroom with fitted wardrobes & storage cupboards, exposed beams and a shower room en suite.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees, including an apple tree, with a low brick retaining wall around the terrace area and a pergola to one side.
Open fencing to the north west of the property takes full advantage of the views over open fields to the countryside beyond and gives a lovely, open feel to the gardens, without being overlooked.
The large parking area to the front of the house could offer scope for the addition of garaging, subject to the necessary consents.
Planning consent was obtained by the current owner in 2007 to alter the driveway to the property by creating a new entrance and widening the access. Whilst this permission has now lapsed, our clients' intention is for this to be reinstated and, whilst subject to an application, the plans are available from the agents.
